Ustinov Annual Conference
The Ustinov Annual Conference provides an interactive and fun space for dialogue between students, faculty and practitioners to explore questions of global citizenship at the intersection of academic theory and real life practice. Participants of the 2017 conference were invited to engage with the perceived polarisation of Western society, the globalism/nationalism dichotomy, as well as non-Western discourses on global citizenship.
Durham is the third oldest university in England and has a long history of welcoming students and academics from across the globe.
Named after Sir Peter Ustinov, Ustinov College is a unique international postgraduate community within the University. Home to culturally diverse and intellectually curious student scholars, the College provides an excellent environment in which to explore the theme of global citizenship.
The 2018 Ustinov Annual Conference will take place on 24-25 August 2018 at Ustinov College, Sheraton Park, Durham. If you are a Ustinov student and would like to participate in the planning process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
